5.1 speaker set for Xbox 360

Found 15th Apr 2009
I've got a spare 360 hooked up in the spare room, to a old TV

I have a spare 22" widescreen which I could use the Xbox on through VGA, problem no sound!

Would a 5.1 speaker set from Tesco etc (for under 20 squid) do the job? It doesn't need to be cinema quality obviously!!


No point in getting a 5.1 speaker system as XBOX 360 only outputs stereo sound, unless you spend mega bucks buying an optical lead and optical speakers.

Might as well just buy a 2.1 speaker system... Even cheaper!

A toslink cable will cost about £10, hardly 'mega-bucks'.
